Published 1960
Topics Comedy, Horror


Seymour Krelboin is a hapless sap working in a skid row flower shop. He loves coworker Audrey Fulquard, but is close to losing his job. Luckily, he discovers a new plant, and brings the sickly specimen to work, which impresses both Audrey and his boss, Gravis Mushnick. Mushnick makes Seymour's job contingent on the survival of the plant. While Seymour works on this, he discovers the plant responds to blood. Oh, and it talks! It tells him it needs more blood to thrive, and Seymour sets about the gruesome business of providing it.

Stars: Jonathan Haze, Jackie Joseph, and Mel Welles

Reviews

Reviewer: Victor Von Psychotron - - April 25, 2014
Subject: Not the greatest horror comedy ever made, but...
…it's still worth watching. A lot of the improvised dialogue by Mel Wells and Dick Miller is quite good, and this film is a great piece of work when you consider it was shot in two days and one night on a used set.
Reviewer: gaffer007 - - January 23, 2013
Subject: Not much of a review...
This print is quite good indeed.
And this is what the movie fully deserves despite its naivity.
